Riyadh was the capital of Saudi Arabia.
In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia the Special Council met in a minor office complex on the outskirts of the city. The leader of the Council, Prince Fedallah said that the King, whom he was a close advisor to, had set them a special task: to give America a supply of oil to safeguard their kingdom. Whilst some of the members of the council believed that it would be a bad idea to help the people who wanted to attack them, Fedallah was adamant that the King's will should be carried out.
Later, at 12:00 p.m. CBT, at the House of the Green Fountain, Imam Omar of the Special Council was enjoying the festivities of a joyous celebration to honour a man who was planning to martyr himself in association with the Cloak of Night, the codename for the oil exchange with the US planned by the Special Council.
